Logical/Linear Operators for Image Curves

  title={Logical/Linear Operators for Image Curves},
  author={Lee A. Iverson and Steven W. Zucker},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Pattern Anal. Mach. Intell.},
We propose a language for designing image measurement operators suitable for early vision. We refer to them as logical/linear (L/L) operators, since they unify aspects of linear operator theory and boolean logic. A family of these operators appropriate for measuring the low-order diierential structure of image curves is developed. These L/L operators are derived by decomposing a linear model into logical components to ensure that certain structural preconditions for the existence of an image… CONTINUE READING
